Phlomis purpurea is one of the best silver foliage evergreen shrubs in our garden. It is a much neater and more densely foliaged plant than other shrubby Phlomis such as P. fruticosa and when the whorls of pink hooded flowers are produced it is very handsome. Best cut to the ground every couple of years to keep it tidy. It wants nothing more than a sunny spot and is very tolerant of drought. 120cm x 140cm.
